Love the menu as so many options. Love the sticky rice and the beef stir fry Service is slow but not horrible. It has a nice environment for singles and couples as well as families. Food 5 stars service 3 stars.

Good value for money here, menu has lots of items to choose from. The service is hit and miss, when it's bad, it's very bad. It could also use a good cleaning between seatings. The selling feature here is the food, I wish the service and cleanliness was equally as good.

"Well, everyone's taste buds are different." This was one of the caustic replies we received from Anna, the less than delightful manager after sending back the atrocious mango salad we ordered. We weren't expecting the greatest food, but we weren't expecting rude, defensive and argumentative customer service! I don't think I will go into much detail about the food, as... More

Ordered a broccoli and beef with sticky rice for take-out. When I was on my lunch and started eating my meal from Ben Tanh, I realized the rice was a little too 'sticky' and started to look more closely at it when I noticed thick, black hairs in amongst the rice. I realized in a moment that they were pubic... More

Only go to this restaurant if you have an empty belly and a big appetite. Portions are large and you will easily have enough for lunch the next day, despite stuffing yourself! Staff are wonderful and friendly, food is fresh and well-made, and service is quick! Everytime we go - we try a new dish....and have yet to be disappointed!... More

Love this place. Can be a bit noisy so be prepared for that. Food has always come fairly quickly and good size portions and hot. Servers are quite attentive and seem to want to serve you. Lots to try on the menu. Always good eats when we visit this place.

I have probably eaten at Ben Thanh a dozen times over the past few years and realized that I have never reviewed this location. The restaurant is close to my work so convenience was the reason why I started to visit but it was the food that keeps me coming back. Service is always decent and they always seem busy.... More

First time here wnd it was excellent. Each ordered something different. The shrimp rolls were very fresh, as were the mango avocado rolls. The small Pho was a hearty portion with the accompanying green onions, cilantro and sprouts. We all ordered the green papaya salad - one regular, one with mango and one with marinated beef. All small portions were... More

The food and service is great and it's our favorite goto spot.. the only bad thing I can say about it is the washrooms are a little on the dirty side... thanks for many great dining experiences
